FabFitFun Spring 2017 Unboxing

If you’ve never heard of it before, FabFitFun is a seasonal subscription box that includes curated beauty, wellness, fitness, and fashion picks. The box is shipped every season (spring, summer, fall, and winter), costs $49, and includes over $200 worth of product (my box’s total was $374).

The spring box was just shipped and includes all types of items for welcoming warmer weather. This post isn’t sponsored but the links included are affiliate links. This was my first fabfitfun box and I was excited to try it out!

Included in the box is a leaflet that explains more about the products and the stories behind them. This box included seven products from female-founded companies and all of the items are formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phtalates, which I really appreciate.

1. Briogeo Roasarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray — $20

I have tried Briogeo’s Rosarco Heat Protectant Creme before and I love it, so I was excited to try this. I love the smell of Briogeo’s products and this was no exception.

Rosarco is Briogeo’s blend of Rosehip, Argan, and Coconut oil which provides hydration, protection from UV rays and free-radicals, as well as antioxidants, and protection from heat exposure.

2. Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator — $79

An exfoliator was the perfect thing to include in this box. Dry skin is common in the winter months and having a layer of dry skin can prevent your other skin care products from achieving their full effects. I love that an exfoliator from a high-end brand was included; I may not have tried it otherwise!

3. Gypsy 05 Roundie — $50

This will come in handy at the beach or on picnics this summer. It unfolds to a large circle that can be used pretty much anywhere. It also folds down to a smaller size so it’s easy to pack along if you’re traveling. It’s not as bulky as a towel or blanket.

4. MILLY Zip Pouch — $45

This bag was designed to hold your wet bathing suits (or other wet clothes). It’s water resistant so you could also use it to keep things dry in your bag. Or like I probably will most of the time, just use it to hold odds and ends when you’re traveling.

5. Karuna Hydrating+ Face Mask — $28

As a #facemaskjunkie, this was one of the items I was most excited for in the box. The set comes with four hydrating face masks to rehydrate and prepare your skin for warmer weather. I really enjoyed these and will definitely repurchase when I use up my stash.

I also thought it was smart to include these in the box because they are perfect to use after exfoliating to really hydrate the skin.

6. RealHer Lip Kit in Neutral Pink — $48

First of all, I have to say that I absolutely love the message of this brand! I’ve never heard of it before, but I love the empowering messages on each product.

Lip products to empower women.

There were three options that you could have gotten (red, pink or nude). I got pink which would not have been my first choice as I don’t like the color with my complexion. After swatching them and wearing them for a bit, I know I will get a lot of use out of the creamy lip pencil and the gloss, but I’m going to have to pass along the liquid lip as the color is unwearable for me.

7. LUV AJ Diamond Kite Crawler Earring Set — $85

This was something I didn’t know I needed until I received it. I am absolutely in love with these earrings and have worn them everyday since I got them. I also get loads of compliments on them and love how they are slightly different and can be mixed and matched with each other or other earrings.


8. Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish Set — $19

My nail polishes came broken, sadly. On the flip side, this gave me a chance to test out fabfitfun‘s customer service.

I contacted them on April 5th, received a “Sorry for the delay!” response two days later on April 7th. They finally responded to me on April 11th saying they would ship out a replacement that could take up 10 days to be processed and then another 10 days to ship. Not the best, but I do appreciate the effort.

9. BONUS:  Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies

I already take Biotin as part of my daily vitamins but I like that these were included. I really liked the Strawberry flavor (it’s tart but with a hint of sweetness). I will consider repurchasing these when I run out.
